Enjoy this easy recipe for Fresh Cranberry Pecan Baked Apples.
On our last camping trip this fall, we made baked apples in the campfire. They were fantastic! My daughter has been asking me to make them in the oven at home. I adapted the recipe and added fresh cranberries to create this amazing treat. These Cranberry Pecan Baked Apples taste great by themselves but are pushed over the top when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Cranberry Pecan Baked Apples
This recipe calls for four apples. I tried both Granny Smith and Ambrosia apples. Granny Smith apples are great in apple pies, but I don’t recommend them for this recipe. I’m sorry the ingredients photo is blurry.
The preparation for these baked apples is really easy. You combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, chopped pecans, and fresh cranberries in a bowl. The apples are cored and placed in a baking dish. Spoon the cranberry mixture into the middle of the apples and top with butter. Pour the cranberry juice into the dish and bake. Get the full recipe at the bottom of the post.
The apples are not the prettiest thing I have ever seen when they are done, but they taste beautiful! We gobbled them down very quickly! I even slurped up the juice left in the bottom of the dish. It’s a perfect combination of cranberry and cinnamon.
My mouth is watering as I type this up, and I want to make the recipe again right now. I will miss cranberries when the season is over. The recipe could be made using dried cranberries.
